Arrowhead Camp offers 2 four-week Leaders In Training (LIT) program for 16 year old campers. The program consists of intensive leadership training, and ‘on the job’ experience in activity areas and with cabin counsellors. LIT’s participate in all aspects of camp life and learn what it takes to be a successful and positive leader in the camp environment. The LIT program prepares the participants to take leadership roles in and out of camp. Many of the successful participants apply to work at camp in the following year.
The Leaders In Training are carefully selected. More information about this program is available by contacting the camp.
Interested in the Leader In Training (LIT) program this summer?
Dates for the LIT program are set for this upcoming summer. During their time with us, our LIT’s receive extensive leadership training, and “on the job” training in all of our activity areas and camper cabins. Participating in team-building activities, such as a visit to a ropes course, and a canoe trip or hike in Algonquin Park, they spend 4 consecutive weeks learning what it means to be a leader at camp and in their community.
How does your child apply to be an LIT?
We will accept a maximum of 10 males and 10 females for each program (July & August), and we will notify all applicants upon acceptance. LIT’s need to be 16 by December 31 2016.
The criteria for acceptance into the program depend on the completion of the 2016 Camper Application Form along with a deposit of $900. In addition to the application form, candidates are required to submit their resume and a letter of application to express why they want to be an LIT. Consideration is given to camp levels that the candidates have achieved, outside qualifications, (eg. first aid, coaching, etc), personality, and leadership potential. Campers who have not been with us for a long time should not assume they won’t be accepted – please apply!
Please give careful consideration to this possibility. Our LIT’s have told us every year that it was “the summer of their lives!”
